Sadly no pictures allowed. I don't know why this was as plenty of official reviews.....

Cabin was not louder then a regular JL in the driving conditions we encountered. Could comfortably chat. At idle and low speeds the Diesel sounds different as you hear the ticking of the high pressure injectors, but it's not loud or annoying but just different. The Audi 3.0L Diesels I've driven made a similar sound. I think it's due to the diesel injector running at some ungodly high pressure.
Did you have a chance to listen as another person drove off? I listened to a YouTube video where a hard accelerating JL diesel made a (somewhat) hellacious noise.
